Michael Smith to beat Peter Wright @ 4/11

Peter Wright has generally become the “whipping boy” so to speak in the Premier League this year. 'Snakebite' has won his QF match just twice in 13 nights, leaving him on his own at the bottom of the table. I don’t really see that changing here when he plays Michael Smith, who desperately needs the points in the next few nights, to have any chance of making the top four and Finals night.

He currently sits four points behind Van Gerwen who’s in fourth place and who faces a tricky match against Rob Cross in Aberdeen, so this could be a rare opportunity for Bully Boy to gain some ground on the Green Machine. Either way, he should run out a comfortable winner in this one.

2 pts Night 14 winner - Luke Littler @ 5/2

Luke Littler to beat Nathan Aspinall @ 4/11

Where do you start with this lad? It was yet another memorable weekend just passed in the early years of young Littler’s career. He lifted the Austrian Darts Open title at the weekend with relative ease - nobody really came that close to beating him - Danny Noppert was the only one who lost in a deciding leg.

This was 'The Nuke'’s fourth title he’s notched up this year on the PDC, since his memorable run to the World final. This backs up winning three of the last five PL nights, which has seen him soar to the top of the PL table by five points.

Meanwhile Nathan Aspinall withdrew from the Austrian Darts Open and opted for a boozy weekend in Vegas with Michael Smith instead - whether this has any effect on his practice/performance remains to be seen, but Littler has generally had his number anyway, winning five of their six meetings this year.

Confidence is sky high for the young man and his eyes will be set on another nightly win, as he contests in the easier half of the draw this week.

Luke Humphries to beat Gerwyn Price @ 8/13

I don’t think anybody can deny that Humphries’ performances have dipped ever so slightly the past couple of weeks, albeit it wasn’t very sustainable to continue posting the numbers he was before.

'Cool Hand' hasn’t won an event for four weeks now, which is a fair amount of time for the current World champion. He’s lost six of his last 11 matches which is rare for him but he’ll look to bounce back this week, to really solidify his spot in the top four and move into the ever nearing Finals night with some momentum.

He faces Gerwyn Price who I have question marks over just now - 'The Iceman' had to withdraw late on from the Austrian Darts Open due to a trapped nerve in his back, which I assume he picked up in his PL match last week.

This can take up to 4-5 weeks to see any real improvement, so he may still suffer from some pain with this injury. On top of this, Humphries has really had the beating of him this past year - since June last year, they’ve played each other eight times, with Humphries winning six of them. 8/13 is more than a fair price for him to beat Gezzy, who doesn’t appear to be 100% fit.

The treble has been generously boosted from 2/1 all the way out to 5/2 which you can back by clicking the banner below.
